2. The Big Lebowski – Donny’s Ashes Scene
This is one of my go-to “make me laugh” clips. Everything from the dialogue to the visuals is so funny. I can’t help but laugh in anticipation of the errant wind scattering Donny’s ashes in The Dude’s face. A foolproof way next time you’re wondering how to make someone laugh, too!
Watch out for an F-bomb here, so don’t play it at work. 🙂

How could you contain your laughs when, on his wedding day, Jim decides to shave his private parts? HA! Guess where they land!
4. Toula’s Brother in My Big Fat Greek Wedding
This movie is a “modern” classic guaranteed to make you laugh. It’s hard to choose a funny clip since the whole movie is really funny. I think this is one of those that you should just play in the background while you wrap up your day. You’ll also learn of Windex’s multiple uses!

Alan’s face after realizing there’s a tiger in the bathroom is priceless! Be careful not to spit out whatever you’re drinking. A classic “make me laugh” movie; you’ll probably watch it many times, so save the cash and just buy it.
6. Bridesmaids – The Food Poisoning Scene
This movie is just too funny. If you haven’t seen it, plan to watch it this week! These actors are all funny on their own, but when they come together it’s a recipe for a laughter attack.
7. Meet The Parent – Dinner Scene
The nervous tension sets the ambiance for what’s coming. The entire movie will have you laughing, maybe to the point you cry.
8. There’s Something About Mary: Is That Hair Gel?
This movie is officially 20 years old, but this scene will you make laugh any day. Hopefully, you’ve seen it. If not, put it on your list.
So, there you have it! Next time you need a quick pick-me-up and a fast way to de-stress, pick one of these clips and watch it. You’ll be laughing before you know it. They always make me laugh, even when I’m at my worst. We can all agree that even when things are fine, it’s always good to have some comic relief. If you manage to squeeze it in during your workday or at lunch, you’ll have more tolerance to deal with stuff, and might even react better to not-so-good last-minute assignments. Hey, it might even prevent you from snapping at someone. So, give it a try. I hope it makes you laugh!
